Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already had quite a few great Soul and R&B singles from my early Mod days and have often been amazed at just how good some of the B sides are on these tracks. I will start off with the B side to a record I have had since 1982. 'Mockingbird' by Inez Foxx was the first record released on the British Sue label in 1963 (as far as I am aware), as well as the main track being superb the B side called 'He's the one You Love' is fantastic too. So what are your own favourite B sides to these crackin records.

  • My latest purchase 'I'll be Loving You' by the Soul Brothers Six has a great version of 'Some Kind of Wonderful' as the b side. I ended up paying £25 for it but it is good value especially when both sides contain great tracks.

  • NZ's Dinah "Queen of the Mods" Lee with her cracking version of "He's Sure The Boy I Love" filmed here at Sydney's Luna Park in 1967.

    • That is a very decent version of a song that i really like MG. I have a copy of the original one by Darlene Love, and saying that I think her voice is fantastic I would still prefer that version to the Dinah Lee one. Very good none the less.
  • Another Solomon Burke worth a listen here. Maggie's Farm, flip side of Tonight's The Night.
    • Great song Motown and a fanastic singer. I have two of his 45s in my collection 'I'm Hanging up my Heart for You' and 'Cry to me.'
  • Bo Diddley ep I was on about, flip side. I can Tell
    • That is a cracking record Motown. Never heard it before today but really good.
    • Cheers Chris, I appreciate your opinion mate :-)
    • Same vice versa mate thats for sure.
  • Received a copy of Jimmy McGriffs 'All About my Girl' on Sue with the excellent 'MG Blues' on the B side. I would think a lot of the serious collectors on here would have owned this 45 for a while now as it has been well known on the scene for ages. Anyway, a great addition to my own collection and another one from the Barnes 'Mods' book to add to the others I have.
